An 18-year-old student has been remanded in custody charged with murder following a fatal stabbing in Essex.

Clive Mundoma, of High Street, Brentwood, is due to appear at Basildon Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

He is charged with killing Francis Ntena Nsiangangu, who was found dead in Tower Hill, Brentwood, on Saturday night.

The 31-year-old, also known as Casper, lived in the Brentwood area but his family home is in east London.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Nsiangangu's provisional cause of death to be a stab wound to the heart.

Four other stab wounds were also found on his body.
